How to Choose a Florist For Your Wedding Flowers

If the shop looks overstuffed and old fashioned, odds are the floral designs will as well. While this does not always hold true it is a good principle to follow. At the same time, start looking for a shop that looks taken care of and put together. I am a big believer that if the shop is well cared for, they care for their blossoms too, and that’s what you desire.

Is your florist friendly? Can they welcome your thoughts? Do they seem knowledgeable? Can they look fair and dependable? Can they seem enthused about what they do or are they simply going through the motions? Go with your gut instinct here. While the person may not reflect your own personal style judge them in their job and their passion for flowers not appearance. That isn’t to say that appearances do not count, if someone can’t be bothered to brush their own hair for your appointment it does not bode well for their devotion to your marriage. I’ve said it before in my other posts and blog posts and I will say it again, isn’t all about the price. Quality and creativity count!

A kwiaciarnia radom that is serious about marriage and serious about providing quality wedding perform will have a designated space for you to sit and chat. You don`t to attempt to organize your wedding flowers while still leaning against their entrance counter would you?

Do They Have Pictures Of Their Work?
This I mean actually THEIR work, not merely a string of printed magazines or books. You wish to see work they’ve done. It is good and well that they say they can create anything, but you want to watch it. Now while they might not have made your precise bouquet, do they have designs that you enjoy and is the quality of workmanship there.

Do They Have Thank You Notes From Other Brides?
This is a big one. You want to know that other Brides are pleased with the job which they have done. With all the additional thank you that the Bride has had to write it actually means something if she took the opportunity to compose a note to the florist. Remember that if you love your flowers, we florists like to hear that we did a good job, that doesn’t?

Do They Ask Questions?
Most importantly you desire a florist that doesn’t just listens to you personally but hears you also. You do not wish to be steam rolled since they have their own agenda regarding what flower will do the job for you. That being stated be open to their ideas, they do this for a living and may have suggestions for something that will do the job better or last longer or will be more accessible. Tell them about your dress, the Bridesmaids dresses, your invitations and the venues. This provides them a really good picture of this sense you are striving for and helps them make appropriate suggestions.

Do They Know The Venues?
Now while they might not know every church in the city, they should probably know most if not all the main churches and reception places. This may be quite useful as they will then understand what works and what does not. If your site is smaller or small known bring images with you to the consultation, then you can work together on the best plan of actions.

Do They Know Their Stuff?
This is just about the biggest point of all. You desire a florist who understands what flowers are available and when and you want a florist who understands what to do and is confident in their abilities. This should not come across as arrogance, since the florist we have to know every blossom out there, you do not – it’s not the job, it is ours. So don’t let your florist talk down to you because you do not know the flower names or layout terms. A good florist will have a book that reveals the majority of the flowers offered and will point out flowers you don’t know or explain an uncommon design style. Remember that many of the wedding books showing stunning floral blossoms come from different countries (USA and the UK are big) and they have access to unique blossoms then we do. Wedding magazines have a reputation for featuring flowers that don’t grow easily in the same season or they utilize garden variety flowers in temples. So yes, although it is lovely, is it practical? Well, all I will say is that when money is no object then yes, pretty much everything is available all the time, but if you’re like the rest of us, adhere to flowers that are readily available and listen to your own florists advice on which is or is not sensible.
